    much better , had that game but rbs 4 fumbles cost the game and d fense needs something before league for sure .. qb looked good so did o-line …..

  2. "NEWOFFENSEGREEN" on September 26th, 2010 11:12 am

    Looks like the green offensive team finally showed up . Now the defensive team needs to show up. Gave up too many big plays !! Cuzing turners was a big plus.
    Continue to work hard green and your season will turn around…..

  3. Touchet on September 26th, 2010 2:20 pm

    Evergreen played much better, it’s just tough when you get two Big Nine oppents one right after another, Big Nine plays tough top to Bottom, they bring it without excuses, Camas and Skyview take notice, try steppin into Big Nine country better yet we will come to you. Good Job Evergreen.

  4. K-nute on September 26th, 2010 3:30 pm

    Touchet, I would agree with you on the Big 9, but really only on the 4A side. I watched part of the Kamiakin/Kennewick 3A game and noted that the left handed Kamiakin QB is really innacurate & they throw practically every down. They had a rightie come in for a bit, but I didn’t see any improvement. Still, Kamiakin is the best thing going in Big 9 3A but I don’t think they get very far especially if they run into an outstanding Mount Spokane team out of the GSL. No way they get past Camas if their paths cross.

    Richland, I think has a solid team but I only watched part of the Hanford game and Hanford is weak so hard to tell but they seem to play solid D. Eisenhower was supposed to be down this year playing a lot of underclassmen but so far with one exception they have looked decent. Wenatchee, Chiawanna & Davis all are solid 4A programs.

    Curious why you don’t bother with a heads up to Union? The U remains a very nicely kept secret, even down here. Is it possible they have been written off? Are we forgetting to remember the Titans? Or, does everyone just wish they didn’t exist? Thats called denial!

    The 2 big computer ranking sites both have Union ranked top 5 in the 4A. Maxpreps & Massey. Both well established and historically very accurate sites, worth a look.

  5. Touchet on September 26th, 2010 11:40 pm

    My mistake on overlooking Union, I know they are good but there was so much talk about Camas and Skyview this past week being the big game of the year. I wanted to respond to that . But yes Union is to be reckoin with this year in 4A GSHL. It’s funny reading all the compliants and excuses after the Camas and Skyview game .

  6. 40 on September 27th, 2010 10:37 am

    K-nute. I dont think anyone who actually knows football and has seen them play this year has written Union off. I think you guys have shown you guys can play with anyone. The good thing about the state rankings is they really mean absolutely nothing.

  7. 40 on September 27th, 2010 10:43 am

    Do I think Camas would beat U guys though…..you bet :)

  8. K-nute on September 27th, 2010 8:51 pm

    40, this year would be very interesting. It’s RIDICULOUS that they will not play and I don’t think I am getting over it anytime soon. I propose that the 2 schools schedule something post-season @ a neutral site to settle things. Very annoying!

    Please answer the charge that the Camas D was attempting to interfere with the Skyview snap count. This is unsportsmanlike conduct TO THE MAX, if true. Which has seemingly been confirmed on this site.

    All I can say is that if it was a coaching decision, than I have lost a TON of respect for the coaching staff at Camas. If it were a rogue Camas defensive player then I think it is a sign of an undiscliplined player, or players. Either way, this does not bode well long term as undisciplined play does not get rewarded when playing against a disciplined team, which is all you will find still playing in the postseason.

    Please tell me that this is completely innacurate and that Camas does not need to find competitive advantages that are not in line with the rules of the game. This issue speaks directly to the overall program and whether or not Camas intends to win with class and sportsmanship, or if they’re just plan to cheat their way for as long as they can.

  9. MeanMachineBleacherCreature on September 27th, 2010 9:32 pm

    K-nute, there is only one level of unsportsmanlike conduct. And to think the entire coaching staff told the team to do that is insane. Lets be real here.

    You make it sound like half the team got busted with Steroids… its a penalty, and they got penalized for it. and still won. To say they are going to cheat through the playoffs is near outrageous.

  10. K-nute on September 27th, 2010 10:51 pm

    Late hits, taunting, over-celebration… are examples of things that occur during the heat of the moment and although may be classified as ‘mental mistakes’ are somewhat forgivable. But, conscientious actions that knowingly break the rules that are intended to gain an advantage by unfairly creating confusion and break up the flow of the game is something quite different. So, I disagree that there is only one level of unsportsmanlike conduct. One is a reaction, the other is an intentional act which is either coached or an act of an undisciplined player, either way it is nothing short of shameful behavior.

    Respect your opponent and respect the rules. Failure to do either is disrespectul to the game and indicates that you are not interested in excellence. I’ve never seen or heard of this on any level, so be outraged if you want, I know I am! Hope that kid ran extra sprints ’til he puked!

  11. MeanMachineBleacherCreature on September 27th, 2010 11:05 pm

    Never heard of it on any level? Thats why its a rule. And part of why the umpire is behind the defense, so they can hear it. Its not like Camas “invented” imitating the snap count.

    Other than that, were gonna have to agree to disagree, we have different opinions, and i dont see either of ours changing any time soon.

  12. Trunks on September 27th, 2010 11:18 pm

    Yeah k-nute I’m going to have to disagree with you as well. Immitating the snap count is not what I would consider unsportsmanlike conduct “to the max”. There are much more dangerous intentional unsportsmanlike plays like intentionally leading with the helmet or a hard late hit where players can seriously be hurt. This was a harmless penalty, and while yes I will admit it was cheap, it was not as severe as you make it sound.

  13. K-nute on September 28th, 2010 12:23 am

    If you live in Camas you must be legally obligated to ball up ALL of your integrity & throw it off the top of Prune Hill.

    Listen, I’m not interested in attempting to persuade any of you blind, mouth-breathing Camas fans. I have no stake in either team, but I know what’s right, and I know what’s wrong. If this were a Union kid, I’d be calling him out too.

    You got kids working their butt off all year. They’re in the weight room, they’re doing speed drills, they’re out there pushing their teammates and they are striving to be the best they possibly can on & off the field. Then you got the kid that is looking for a short-cut. He might not be so willing to do the work in February when the spotlight isn’t on him, but he figures he’ll make up for it by trying to outsmart the system.

    To even think for one second that trying to cheat on the field is acceptable disgusts me! I hold the coaching staff responsible and to the fans that attempt to rationalize it, I hold you in the lowest esteem as all you do is encourage this type of stuff and don’t see the larger picture of what is actually at stake here.

    We wouldn’t be having this conversation if a Camas kid hadn’t attempted to intentionally CHEAT! That is a fact that cannot be dismissed by calling it a harmless penalty and attempting to alter the discussion over to something it is not. Deal with the facts, or the facts will ultimately deal with you.

  14. greater saint on September 28th, 2010 7:06 am

    how did a camas kid cheat?? i need clarification

  15. greater saint on September 28th, 2010 7:15 am

    something about interfering with skviews snap count??? how??

  16. backfromthegrave on September 28th, 2010 8:21 am

    I wouldn’t exactly call it cheating. It’s just illegal. Like holding. But guys hold. Cheating would be more like playing a player who is ineligible, stealing the other teams playbook, or receivers using stickem so the can catch the ball. However, after it happens once and the skyview captain makes his complaint to the ref, they shouldn’t get away with it 3 or 4 more times before a flag is finally thrown. Especially when skyview was on the goal line. Camas is a good team. They played great! You can’t take that away from them. But the only people you can accuse of cheating were the referees. They cheated skyview players out of a fair game.

  18. K-nute on September 28th, 2010 9:27 am

    Okay, let me break it down for you. The QB is about to get a play off, he’s going thru his snap count. Then someone on the defensive side yells out something that sounds like part of the QB’s cadence. this may induce a false start. Maybe the center snaps, maybe he doesn’t. Maybe the guard fires, maybe he doesn’t… What you have done is completely destroy the timing and rythm of that offensive play. Not by doing something physical to overcome your opponent, but rather by doing something intentiionally illegal & cowardly. The offense has been put in an unfair situation and this is my point. It was done multiple times, so it clearly was pre-meditated and intentional. If it was instructed by the sidelines, then we have a much bigger problem.

    This is why I make the distinguishment between merely a penalty (holding, as you suggest) and cheating. It was an illegal tactic intentionally used multiple times to gain an unfair advantage., No other way to describe it other than cheating. No place in football for this, Camas should be better than this.

  19. 40 on September 28th, 2010 10:33 am

    Switch to decaf knute. You seem to hate camas way to much.

    Is what the kid did wrong, you bet. He was penalized for it and will probably have ref’s watching him for the rest of the year for it. Sometimes kids do stupid things, this was one of them. I’m sure the coaching staff will be talking to him about the problem. It may surprise you that other teams have coaches who preach doing things the right way.

    If we want to talk about ‘cheating” lets talk about a now graduated Camas DB who played some youth football with a bunch of kids who went to Union, who had an interesting phone call from a certain head coach in this league where this head coach let him know he would be welcome on this head coaches team. The exact words were, “You will always have a place at _ _ _ _ _.” This was told to me by the DB in question. If true, and I only have 2nd have knowledge, I would consider this cheating. And if you get this worked up over a KID doing something wrong, I can’t imagine how upset you would be if a apperantly respectable coach actually did this.

  20. MeanMachineBleatureCreature on September 28th, 2010 10:47 am

    So is intentional grounding cheating? It clearly has your favorite word intentional in it, and the QB does it so he doesnt have to get sacked. Is THAT cheating? It is, after all, intentional….

    You have no stake in either teams, you just love the U with all your heart, and despise Camas as much as gum on the bottom of your shoe. You may not have kids going to Union, or work there, but it sounds like an emotional stake in a team to me…

  21. PopPrep on September 28th, 2010 10:51 am

    Well, even if that supposedly did happen (which it never did). Union did just fine without him, so looks like he was the one who missed out.

  22. 40 on September 28th, 2010 10:57 am

    how do you know pop prep. the only 2 people who know for sure are the coach and the kid.

  23. 40 on September 28th, 2010 11:03 am

    And really who cares if it happend. I’m over that whole topic anyway. I was just using it to make an example so my bad for mentioning it. It just ticked me off today to log on and because of something stupid one player did, have someone on here questioning the integrity of the entire camas team, coaching staff, and fans.

    If you try and tell others to be classy, it might be a good idea to be classy as well.

  24. greatersaint on September 28th, 2010 11:54 am

    one more question when the flag is thrown for that what is the term used ie… QB throws football away is called intentional grounding 12 players on the field is called illegal participation so whats the correct term for that

  25. greatersaint on September 28th, 2010 11:57 am

    could it have been a mistake maybe??? defense makes play adjustments all the time with line backers yelling stuff to let teammates know most common one would be telling defense to watch the ball and watch for a delayed snap count

  26. Bryan Levesque on September 28th, 2010 12:02 pm

    unsportsmanlike conduct, simulating the snap count

  27. greater saint on September 28th, 2010 1:17 pm

    thanks bryan

  28. greater saint on September 28th, 2010 1:26 pm

    whats ur opinion bryan did u hear the camas player disrupting the snap count??

  29. backfromthegrave on September 28th, 2010 2:13 pm

    Get real. Of course he didn’t hear it. He wasn’t on the field. you can’t hear that stuff from the stands. Especially in Camas. Man, that place was loud. Really gotta take my hat off to all the students and fans who showed up and packed that place. Some of those players will play in front of smaller crowds in college…..

  30. Bryan Levesque on September 28th, 2010 2:21 pm

    I was at the game, but since I was in the press box, I could not hare anything from the field. I know both Camas and Skyview coaching staffs would not encourage their players to do that, if it were happening. Now, do I think it is a big deal? Not really. Would I call it “cheating”? No. That, like holding, pass interference and taunting are all up to the ref to throw a flag on. I feel that to call something “cheating” we are talking about a kid using PED, using a 25 year old OL that you know has graduated from college, having a bug in the other teams coaches box and steeling their play calling. THAT is cheating. It is up to the ref to throw a flag during the game, and if a kid won’t stop, then he can be kicked out of the game. I can tell you right now if that was happening that is not why Camas beat Skyview.

  31. greater saint on September 28th, 2010 3:37 pm

    thanks for your input bryan

  32. K-nute on September 28th, 2010 9:00 pm

    Bryan, according to several people on this site and elsewhere Camas was penalized for attempting to disrupt the Skyview snap count. Apparantly it happened several times until it was finally called. This, to me says either the coaching staff was slow to catch on or they knew and didn’t put a stop to it. Okay, Benefit of the doubt to the coaching staff.

    I will back off the cheating accusation, but this certainly is not how a class program should act. When I played I had a head coach fire an assistant on the spot for instructing his players to knowingly commit an illegal act. Marched him right off the field, effective immediately.

    The Camas Defense was not reacting to a situation and got caught up in the emotion and did something that was against the rules. They knew what they were doing was illegal, yet still did it. Malice of forethought – this is what I am so bothered about.

    I never said that this reason alone is why Camas beat Skyview. All I have ever said is that I am disappointed by the action and feel that Camas should be above this type of thing. Which I ultimately believe they are.

    40, I apologize for offending you and have taken steps to ween myself off the hard stuff and over to decaf as you suggested. The rest of you joker camas fans have zero reading comprehension skills.

  33. CHSbleachercreature on September 28th, 2010 9:34 pm

    K-nute. Paragraphs 1-4 very classy very nice very well said. Very last sentence just ruined it all….. You make me laugh. I dont think anyone hates camas more than you, skip the players, skip the coaches, just go straight for the fans! Questioning reading comprehension is just superrr classy. Anyways who needs to read when Camas has the best fans in the gshl. we travel the best! We yell the loudest! We fill out 3000 person stands…. With people still on the fence! People in camas say they get used to the bad smell… I dont think ill ever be able to get used to you…

  34. Trunks on September 28th, 2010 9:55 pm

    Bleachercreature couldn’t have said it better. I am proud to be from camas and proud of our passionate fan base and great football team. It just makes me laugh when some people on this site call the team and coaching staff classless when I know them personally and they are the farthest thing from it.

  35. k-nute on September 28th, 2010 10:08 pm

    Wasn’t aimed at you, CHS as I believe you are a level-headed Camas supporter. If you read the whole thread I think you will understand how my carefully worded explanation of my thoughts were completely mis-characterized by some less than level-headed Camas fans. I’m sure everyone is tired of this subject, so I am done talking about it, just felt it important that you understand that I don’t put you into the ‘mouth-breathing’ category. I don’t hate Camas, I wish them the best. If this situation stemmed from any other school, I would have spoke up about it too – Union included.

    P.S. Union has their own set of embarassing fans supporting them on this site too, as I have mentioned in previous posts.

  36. Evergreenfan on September 28th, 2010 10:20 pm

    Good grief. Time to change the subject. Like let’s talk about who is going to win Battle Ground or Evergreen.

  37. CHSbleachercreature on September 28th, 2010 10:35 pm

    Evergreen! They got something to prove!

  38. Trunks on September 28th, 2010 10:43 pm

    I say evergreen as well. They can still save the season and make the playoffs

  39. PopPrep on September 28th, 2010 10:48 pm

    Best fans in the GSHL are at Camas?

    Union has the best fanbase I have seen bar none. Best band in the area they play every single down. And the students and fans fill up McKenzie. Much more impressive than filling up Doc Harris. Their student section could probably take up a third of the home side stands at Doc Harris. Oh and travel the best? I can’t see how that’s possible since you have never been to the dome at all.

    Maybe this year there is a lot of people turning out due to the hype, but lets see how excited they are when they run into Liberty again who has just gotten better. Or heck, maybe Bellevue will give them a beating and then Camas will be saying the next day “So that’s what Union has had to deal with.” . But more importantly than that how many will turn out next year when Camas returns to mediocrity?

  40. MeanMachineBleatureCreature on September 28th, 2010 11:22 pm

    PopPrep, traveling fans has absolutely NOTHING to do with the fact that Camas hasnt played in the Tacoma Dome. Im sure if Camas makes it to the Dome this year, it will [darn] near meet what Union has brought before.

    I thought we were moving on?

    In any case, i say Battle Ground. They also have something to prove with the loss to Bay. I say that should be an extremely close game though.

  41. 40 on September 29th, 2010 8:25 am

    Were you at quest this year pop prep? Camas had twice as many fans up there as Union. I was shocked at how few Union fans were there because I always had considered U guys a great fan base.

  42. 40 on September 29th, 2010 8:27 am

    Its all good Knute. If we all agreed with each other this site wouldn’t be as interesting.

  43. PopPrep on September 29th, 2010 10:52 am

    Only reason there was so many of them there is because this is the first year in a very long time, maybe ever, that Camas has a legitimate shot at having a long playoff run season.

    Just wait till next year and we will see how that fan support carries over.

  44. Itsmorning on September 29th, 2010 2:45 pm

    Did i say we have the best fans in the gshl next year? No. Do i still think we will have close to the same amount next year? Yes. Are you really being negative towards people who support camas? Yes. How sad is it? Very.

    Im just trying to have fun, be enthousiastic, and support camas. And you are putting everyone at camas down? Cmon now

  45. CHSbleachercreature on September 29th, 2010 2:46 pm

    Oh and sorry about the name change. It was me

  46. Trunks on September 29th, 2010 6:02 pm

    Yeah seriously popprep. Union had a two row student section at qwest. And the fact that you come up with some ridiculous negative reason for every aspect of camas’ succes is very sad, just like someone said above.

  47. PopPrep on September 29th, 2010 6:36 pm

    Have you ever thought that maybe… Just maybe. That a lot of people just didn’t want to make the drive?

    But hey, how much did Camas fill up the Tacoma Dome last year? Oh wait… They’ve never been… Ever.

    How many years have they had to work on that? Decades?

    I just think its hilarious that the Camas faithful tout about how Camas is soooooo great when all of you have belittled and criticized Union for all of their “recruiting” and lack of class among other things for the past two years. And now when someone decides to give you a little bit of it back you suddenly are all up in arms?

    That’s whats sad here…

  48. MVHS Athlete on September 29th, 2010 6:45 pm

    Dude pop prep here is how it is. Camas fans are probly the best fans in the league. In all sports. at every football and basketball game, home of away, the bleachers are packed and loud all the way to the back of the stands. I mean seriously when the baseball team went to safeco there was a ton of students there supporting the baseball team. Just because they havent made the high and mighty trip to the tacoma dome does not mean that unions fans are soooooooooo much better. cuz they arent. The team might be better, but the fans from camas are tops in the league. bar none

  49. DCGardner on September 29th, 2010 6:51 pm

    If I might interject

    How does one measure who has the “best fans”? How do you quantify that?

    Union and Camas both fill up their stadiums whenever they play. (If you want to count Qwest go ahead and be petty)

    Union and Camas both have good bands (Though Union’s band does play more)

    Union and Camas both travel well (If you want to count Qwest go ahead and be petty)

    And at the end of the day it doesn’t even matter who has the best fans, because all the fans in the world don’t win football games.

    In short, any argument about who has the “best fans” is unfounded at the most basic of levels and most of all is completely irrelevant.

  50. Hydro on September 29th, 2010 7:30 pm

    This blog thread is really long on a U vs.C rivalry. What’s funny is it’s on a Evergreen losing to Eisenhower post. This is hilarious! U, and C are really good this year and I think the question is still out on Skyview to see what they do the rest of the year. Just come out again this weekend and see what happens. All true fans are good fans! Let the wins speak!

  51. Someone on September 29th, 2010 8:36 pm

    actually hydro i notice that this happens on about all threads where camas/union supporters and fans bash each other about whos better. Union and camas fans please stop bashing each other you guys don’t even play each other ths year!

  52. CHSbleachercreature on September 29th, 2010 9:04 pm

    But we love eachother so much :)

  53. MeanMachineBleacherCreature on September 29th, 2010 9:44 pm

    PopPrep- One of your arguments is that Camas fans are only around because theyre doing well this year. Well then how does that explain the need for a new, larger Doc Harris? Camas fans are loyal to the team. Sure, if camas put up a goose egg in the win column next year, the attendance would be down a lot. But the fact that there is always some talent that comes out of Camas settles that right then and there.

  54. "NEWOFFENSEGREEN" on September 30th, 2010 6:11 am

    Is it me or does it look like Evergreen even looks disorganized even during their pre-game warm ups!! I understand there will be changes again, which means they will be disorganized again during the game. Watch for that was your man, no that was yours. I feel for you kids, a new plan and a new game plan . Hope you kids are keeping up your grades !! Coaches are disarray with changes there too. Maybe the wrong coaching changes are being made !! Whatever Green, good luck you will need it.
